note: i just updated this with links to blogs i previously wrote about a couple of the movies listed. except for the equinox link which is a link to a music video about the equinox.
this is my version of this. the following are teen movies or, at least, movie significantly dealing with teenagers and teen-related issues. except for the last two. i just want to see those on the big screen. these are, in my opinion, some of the best teens in the history of movies (or the history of movies i’ve seen).
cherry hill high
it’s about a contest between high schoolers to see who can lose their virginity in the most creative way, including in a shark tank
rebel without a cause
and teens are so funny because they’re always super-dramatic
sometimes teens are in french pop bands
and sometimes they discover the book of evil, but make sure you watch equinox: a journey into the supernatural and not equinox the movie the studio butchered
even though it features some awesome teens, divine steals the show (like always)
seduced and abandoned
bill and ted’s excellent adventure
this movie is great and not just in a funny, nostalgic kind of way, the way everyone talks about goonies
this movie has the best theme song ever
mostly i just want to see the rainbow room scene on the big screen
that and the part where the toads and lizards recreate the spanish conquest of mexico
i didnt even explain my picks, but i’ll defend any and all of them in the comments. and, i’m counting whitney’s tags as my own since it’s our blog and she tagged everyone i know anyway.
